Mitchell Akiyama - unknown

With an unusual Saturday night edition and winter nowhere yet to be found, it felt a little different heading down for this one. As with the first of this year's series, the best spot for music was down in the basement, while dance and art crept closer to the night's centre from all directions. Mitchell Akiyama, a scholar and composer who has also been releasing electronic music since the turn of this century, filled the Conversation Room with a series of loop-y pieces that managed to remain satisfyingly unsettled, never settling into rote dancefloor repetition. [He has also posted his full set over at his soundcloud.]

[The next Long Winter will be on January 16th, 2016 — note that's on a Saturday again — with sets from Vallens, LOOM, Mystic Triangle, Michelle McAdorey, JOOJ, STÜKA, Pantayo, Khôra, Strands, Overnight and more.]
